Setting Up Your Account with the CS Authentication System

Please read the instructions below carefully before proceeding.

  1. Login to accounts.cs.byu.edu using your CS Username (which generally matches your NetID) and your BYU ID number as your password.
    • Note that this only works if you have never set up your account!
    • If this doesn't work, visit the system administrators in TMCB 1140. Make sure to bring photo ID.
  2. On the next screen enter your BYU ID number again as the current password.
  3. Skip the OTP blank, then type in and verify your new password in the remaining fields.
  4. If the screen flashes and your info disappears, either your password didn’t meet the criteria required or your current password was entered incorrectly.
    • The password requirements can be found at the bottom of the page.
  5. If it says “Authenticating…” at the top of the login screen and then proceeds to a white screen from there, you have succeeded!
  6. Be sure to log out using the menu in the top right corner of the window.

Password Requirements

Your new password must be at least 8 characters long and have characters from 3 out of 4 of these groups:

  1. Capital Letters
  2. Lower-case Letters
  3. Numbers
  4. Special Characters (like spaces , . / ? * & % $, etc.)
